Six Sentence Sunday - The Goblin King - The REAL Reason


Welcome back to the Weird, the Wild, & the Wicked, Sixers! I appreciate your return and all the new people stopping by, too. Thank you for your comments; they mean a lot to me, especially because they let me know I'm not just shouting into the vast darkness of internet space! ;) Also, be sure to check out the other authors' blogs who participate in Six Sentence Sunday. Some of my favorites are Cara Michaels, JoAnn Ross, and Lynne Murray.

Today's snippet comes from my WIP The Goblin King, Tricia MacGowan finds out the primary reason Jakran brought her to his home is to further the Goblin Royal line.

           “You, Tricia, are the most magically endowed goblin female I’ve seen in well over two centuries as well as the only female of marriageable age. These are the two most desirable traits you possess.” He smiled and while she enjoyed the smoldering look accompanying the smile, the words were just a little too hollow for her to believe the sentiment.
           Way to compliment a girl. Does she look good? No, but she’s magically endowed and old enough to mate.


That's certainly one way to win her over. Thank you for stopping by and reading about the Goblin King. Next week I'll be introducing you to Marcus Baird, a crafty pirate, and the lass who loves him despite his insistence on wearing his cranky pants. ;) Happy reading! :)
